The FIR registered against the Webwork on Tuesday by the CBI does not mention Shah Rukh or Nawazuddin as either accused or suspects.

The CBI has taken over the probe into the Rs 500 cr online cash-for-click scam.

The online ponzi scam, to be investigated by the CBI, was being run from UP’s Ghaziabad district by Webwork Trade Links Pvt Ltd.

The complaint has also mentioned the names of Bollywood stars Shah Rukh Khan and Nawazuddin Siddiqui, who had endorsed the Webwork’s shadow company Addsbook.com in 2016.

Addsbook.com was launched on December 10, 2016.

The FIR registered against the Webwork on Tuesday by the CBI does not mention Shah Rukh or Nawazuddin as either accused or suspects.

However, the CBI may seek a clarification from the actors, as reported by the First Post.

The CBI has taken over the probe into its hands from the UP police which was initially investigating the matter.

The UP police had registered a case against the promoters of Addsbook.com namely Anurag Garg and Sandesh Verma, who are accused of duping thousands of investors using the two Bollywood actors as brand ambassadors.

The complaint, which is now part of the CBI FIR, holds both the Bollywood stars equally responsible for the fraud the company has committed.

According to it, after seeing Shah Rukh and Nawazuddin as brand ambassadors of the Addsbook.com, people believed in the online ponzi scheme and made heavy investments only to be duped later.
